New Ipswich P&R buses
Ipswich Buses relaunched its Park and Ride service in the Suffolk town on 28 October, having added eight secondhand Optare Versas sourced through ADL to its fleet to operate the route. The buses will run from the two sites at London Road and Martlesham and now feature a new livery. Two new ADL Enviro200s which have been acquired are also painted in the park and ride scheme for additional cover. They will usually be operated on a town service.
Ipswich Buses has won the park and ride service contract from Suffolk County Council and is rolling out improvements to the services including CCTV and next stop announcements on vehicles, reduced prices for group tickets and improved integration with its other services.
